  • This is an amazing place

    This is an amazing place. Whether you are skiing biking running or walking it is worth the extra distance to get back to this place at the end of a long day. Ideal for larger groups too and the kids will love the layout, just has that wow factor for them. We had some bad weather days but it was great just being on the property, lots of space in and out.

  • The lodge is a fantastic place to stay

    The lodge is a fantastic place to stay.very large,spacious rooms with everything you could need for a home away from home. Deb had the fire going and had baked us some beautiful cookies for our arrival which was a lovely touch. The mountain showed his face at sunset which was truly epic.the hot tub was clean and welcoming and we had a couple of lovely soaks. Beds were very comfy and all in all this is a fantastic,quirky and secluded place for a family or large group to stay. 10 out of 10.
